What forage analysis means for AIC

AIC manage the organisation of the FAA Group, providing a chairperson (John Kelley), technical secretariat (Roberta Reeve) and financial services (Lisa Hawes).
Within AIC, the Animal Feed Sector provides policy, guidance, trade assurance schemes and training including the Feed Adviser Register (FAR) and the feed assurance schemes UFAS, FEMAS and TASCC. Forage is an important part of animal feed for ruminant diets. Analysis of forage, together with nutritional expertise from nutritionists and feed advisers allow optimum diets to be devised that combine home-grown forage with bought-in feeds.
Healthy efficient diets will optimise output, whilst minimising the environmental impact and pollution from animal production.
AIC works with the FAA Group to maintain and improve the standards of forage analysis available to the farmer and feed industry.
